We are often asked, “Is there a ‘test’ I can take to help me figure out what career best suits me?” The Career Center offers a variety of career assessment tests to meet your needs. Choose from programs, small groups, individual career counseling sessions or a new computerized option to assess your style and interests. Talk with a career advisor during advising hours or contact the Information Desk (734-764-7460) to arrange your career assessment.
If you would like an in-depth career counseling experience that utilizes career assessment instruments to help in your choice of academic major or career, you may want to arrange an hour-long appointment with a career counselor at The Career Center. You can work with a counselor to incorporate the results of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and/or the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) into your decisions.
If you are interested in taking an assessment, contact us to discuss your decision-making strategies and the assessments that will be most helpful for you.
The MBTI is a self-report questionnaire designed to make Jung’s theory of psychological types understandable and useful in everyday life. It is one of the most widely used instruments for understanding personality differences and is widely used to understand people in terms of their decision-making styles, preferences for communication and work environments, and for career development and exploration.
The SII is a widely respected career interest inventory designed to help people find a fit between their personalities and work. It compares your interests and preferences to people in general and to people who have been happy and satisfied in their careers. The results from the SII identify careers that best fit a person’s interests.
